KP Doctors End Strike After Successful Negotiations With Govt

PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s doctors ended their strike on Tuesday night following successful negotiations with the provincial government.

As part of the agreement between the doctor organisations and the government, it was decided that two committees will be formed.

The first committee, as per the agreement, will comprise members of the government and doctors, and would deal with proposed reforms in regional health authority (RHA) and district health authority (DHA).

The second committee, meanwhile, would conduct an inquiry into the alleged thrashing of a general surgeon at provincial health minister Dr Hisham Inamullah Khan and his security guards’ hands last week — an incident that had triggered the strike. The committee will be led by Commissioner Peshawar.
